Researchers hope new litter of mountain lion kittens will diversify NRA's gene pool

The mountain lion population in Santa Monica Mountains National Recreation Area in California has grown by three, but more importantly, those three kittens could be carrying some much-needed genetic diversity.


P-54, a three-year old female living in the Santa Monica Mountains, recently gave birth to a litter of kittens – males P-82 and P-83, and female P-84, according to National Park Service biologists. Researchers believe this is her first litter.
